If I was a millionaire, this would be near the top of my to-do list -- 
build a real dalek, controlled by a PC inside, running Ubuntu or 
something similar, programmed to do dalek things and question any 
visitors to my home.

Anyone interested in building a dalek should probably go to

If you join the forum you get a free manual to build your own dalek.

Or visit

I have also seen old daleks from either Doctor Who films or the old TV 
series for sale on ebay.

Someone has built a PC shaped like a dalek at
and one like a Tardis
http://www.asqi21.dsl.pipex.com/tardis.htm - I love the DVD tray on this
and a car shaped PC running Linux
